 I have been loving and painting rhinos for years, and I have been given special permission to visit the private breeding program for the Sumatran Rhino at The Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary. To create this body of work, and art book,and a free children's coloring book for expanding public knowledge about conservation efforts.

Starting December 25th 2014 I will be spending 9 days in Way Kambas National Park, which hosts the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary, where I will get to draw paint and photograph the wilds of Indonesia and share what I learn about them with you.

This fundraiser is for the support cost of developing this series of art:

Incidental travel expenses: The hiring of guides through the jungle, short trip transportation, food ect.

Art Materials 

Publishing fees for art book and coloring book.

Permit fees for documenting in the park.

The ability to offer the Coloring book to children for free online, and at the 2015 exhibition.

Risks and challenges

There will be tigers and wild elephants, There will be leeches, avoidance of malaria, culture shock, language barriers, travel snafus, indigestion, poor nights sleep, learning how to use new toilets and so on. I will do my best to be prepared, and more importantly, adapt.I am putting in redundancies to ensure success: packing a small box of essentials and leaving it with a trusted friend to mail to me if things go missing. Upon return I imagine my challenges to make the body of work and publish the books will be of the usual variety.

If something manages to slow the speed of the project I will notify my backers, immediately.
